An extended version of the natural history section of the author's work: Compendio della storia geografica, naturale, e civile del regno del Chile. Bologna, 1776 (published anonymously)

Text in Italian; diagnoses of taxa of animals, plants and minerals in Latin

Work published in October 1782 (after Oct. 11), according to Stafleu & Cowan; imprimatur (p. [1] at end) dated 12 Oct. 1781

Title vignette, with motto: Nihil mihi

Signatures: A-Z (A8 verso blank). Some direction lines include the designation: "Tom. I.". This is very likely an indication of the anticipation of a second volume; that volume, however, was issued as an independent companion volume, under the title: Saggio sulla storia civile del Chile. Bologna, 1787, by the same publisher as the present work, Stamperìa di S. Tommaso d' Aquino
